These duo of cakes were baked by Maile Cake Design for a darling Utah wedding featured in the 2023 Fall/Winter issue of Rocky Mountain Bride. A traditional wedding cake adorned with delicate florals and a groom’s cake to show off the groom’s love for golfing. It was personalized with the couple’s initials and last name!

Ten: Marbled Delight

We adore this cake for its exquisite blend of flavors, as the marriage of modern vanilla bean, zesty lemon curd, and mixed berry basil buttercream creates a symphony of taste that delights the senses with every forkful. Additionally, the cake’s visual allure is equally enchanting, thanks to Lustr Creative‘s masterful touch in crafting a marbled fondant exterior with rolled ribbed texture, forming a mesmerizing mosaic that elevates the overall experience.
